the details and the politics with two senators who helped craft the proposal. illinois democrat dick durbin and arizona republican jeff flake. >> ifill: then we turn to conflicts in three places around the world beginning with a renewed wave of unrest in egypt that's left more than 50 people dead. >> woodruff: from israel margaret warner reports on fears of islamic militants and chemical weapons just over the border. >> warner: with conflict raging inside syria israel's taking no chances. it's now fortifying the security barrier behind me to guard against any dangers that may arise. >> ifill: and from mali lindsay hilsum has a story of celebration as french and local forces push north to capture two key towns. >> reporter: look at these people. just thrilled because they can dance. they can sing. the women can ride motor bikes. they can do all the things they haven't been able to do for the last nine months while the jihadis have been in power. >> woodruff: we close with a new edition of the daily download. tonight, can your facebook postings get you fired? >> ifill: that's all ahead on ton
sides, chuck schumer, dick durbin, john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, you game it a lot of folks whose names you'll recognize at this announcement. this plan, we're told would provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens already here in america. and our chief correspondent campaign carl cameron live from capitol hill. >> comprehensive immigration reform has basically been stalled by gridlock for almost a decade. republican and democrats have been going forward. tomorrow the president will announce some of his proposals in a news conference and in a speech in las vegas, so this really is an example of the bipartisan senate gang of eight, so-called, calling themselves. and lay down a marker and show that congress hasn't been ignoring this, and president has not dealing with it in his first term. it does have the path to citizenship. some critics say it amounts to amnesty. first, securing the border, whether that's a fence or a wall or uses technology instead, has always been a real point of contention, they would reduce the overstayed visa, a problem. 40% of the ill
months ago. democratic senator dick durbin of illinois wanted to make clear what happens when intelligence information is still evolving. >> and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on. iraqi weapons of mass destruction. we were told by every level of government here there were iraqi weapons of mass destruction that justified a war, the invasion by the united states. we are still searching for those weapons. they didn't exist. >> clearly, the strangest behavior of the day came from senator rand paul of kentucky, the tea party darling, the leader of the tea party used the hearing to grandstand and advance his political positions. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieve you'd of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> tough talk from president paul. his question to secretary clinton should help get to the bottom of things, don't you think? >> now, my question is the u.s. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buyin
conversation with democratic senator dick durbin of illinois. i talked to the majority whip just a short time ago. senator durbin, thank you very much for joining us. i think one of the main questions i'm hearing is, what does this proposal mean for people living in this country illegally right now? what would happen to them? >> basically it would give them a chance to go through a criminal background check to make certain that there are no problems in terms of their background, to pay a fine, to pay their taxes, and then they would be here in a probationary status where they could not be deported. they could work. and we watched them as a number of other things evolve and progress under the bill. border security leading to green cards, leading to citizenship. >> woodruff: we hear some advocacy organizations saying, wait a minute. even that level of requirement is going to be a disincentive. they're not going to want to sign up if they have to pay a fine and so forth. >> well, i'll tell you. that's going to be part of it. we believe that these people who have lived here for so many years in f
schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio. it's as good as it get when it comes to a picture. you throw it in there, it's got southwestern senators. it's as good as it gets for a bipartisan plan. done deal? >> i don't know about done deal. i wish it was a done deal. there's something you expect. you expect lindsay graham and john mccain to be on that list. you cannot underestimate the importance of having marco rube y -- rubio on that list. you see the shift -- >> a little defensive. he's having to play a lot defense. >> a little bit but the fact that he's a part of it and he's so well liked in that segment of the republican party for which is comprehensive is code word for amnesty is helpful. >> maria, that's the big compromise if you will, that these republicans are making. despite all this talk that nothing comprehensive can get done, rubio says, no, no, we're never going to get border security without the pathway to citizenship. >> it also shows how mccain is mentoring rubio. basically mccain sat him down and said we need to do something comprehensive. unless they pass compreh
working on this plan during a series of closed door meetings dick durbin and chuck schumer as well as john mccain and marco rubio. we are expecting them to unveil that proposal later today on capitol hill and we should see some provisions giving a faster path to citizenship far farm workers and young people brought here as children. this also paves the way for a contentious legal battle. president obama is proposing his own ideas tomorrow during a speech in las vegas and no telling whether he will adopt the plan from the senate. but the senate's blue print is expected to take presence dense on capitol hill and with that bi-partisan backing, it could have a better chance of making it through congress. we could see committee votes as soon as march. also in the senate lawmakers are gearing up for a battle over gun legislation. the judiciary committee will hold its first gun violence hearing and wayne lapierre is set to testify as is gabby giffords' husband, mark kelly. sheriff's alongside vp joe biden over the gun control policies proposed earlier this mont
